  5. My Aunt has an issue with her landladies and Jessop’s the letting agent for the last 5 years. She’s reported issues with rusty radiator, back door, slugs coming up the skirting boards, damp in all the rooms, ceiling falling down, lounge window falling in. The carpets wet and stinky from rotten floors. Beams for Floor are rotten throughout and has black mould. Under stairs cupboard has mould an damp and was patched up with ply from last tenancy. She has a hole in her floor at the bottom of the stairs. Environmental agency were going round then cancelled as the Landladies said they were looking into going through insurance to do the work. Which my Aunt and 12 year old cousin who are both constantly ill with coughs, sickness, depression, anxiety would be re-housed whilst work carried out. Landladies then gave her 4 months notice to get out. There is no where to rent and she has to leave next week. The council don’t have anything for her and cant do anything until she is homeless.
    They’ve told her she needs to clean the carpets despite the floor underneath being rotten and expect her to pay her full rent.

    She wants to show these Landladies and Jessop’s for what they really are and ensure that no one else rents the property from them without all the work being done.

  6. Hi, we are landlords that have very troublesome tenants. We are based in Bromsgrove, west midlands, we have tenants that have refused to pay since March 2020 (covid lockdown) we are running through the eviction process with them but they are refusing to leave or repair the damage they have caused. They are very unsociable and cause a nightmare to the neighbourhood. They currently owe us over £10,000 in unpaid rent and there eviction date is end of january 2022 . No signs of them moving out. I think this would make a really good episode highlighting the vulnerable position landlords have been in since covid lockdown and the overall disrispect tenants can have to respectful, law abiding landlords like ourselves. We are about to instruct a team of bayliffs and commence court proceedings to evict them. Please let me know if this would be of interest for your show and I can offer you more information.
